Armoured Car Sends Money Flying Across Motorway

People were stopping on a motorway to pick up loose cash after an armoured truck dropped a huge bag of money on the highway. Watch the aftermath below:


According to ABC10 News, two people were arrested on Friday (19 November) after the vehicle spilled bags of money onto Interstate 5 in Carlsbad, US, which prompted a huge reaction from motorists.

At approximately 9am the truck was headed to Federal Reserve from a local bank after a door reportedly popped on northbound I-5 near Cannon Rd.

Fitness influencer Demi Bagby shared the clip with her 2.6 million followers and, understandably, was absolutely buzzing.

She said: "This is the most insane thing I've ever seen.

"Someone dropped money all over the freeway - San Diego has shut down.

"Literally it has shut down, look at the freeway right now, oh my gosh. "

California Highway Patrol (CHP) said several social media videos show people on the freeway picking up the cash, and that they are working with the FBI to investigate.

They say the driver of the armored truck tried to recover some of the money from lanes, but then started videotaping people.

"There is a lot of video evidence of people picking up the cash, so we are going to be following up on every lead that we have," said CHP Sergeant Curtis Martin.

"We did arrest two suspects on the scene.

"Those two suspects accidentally locked their car so it was blocking lanes of traffic, so they were still here when officers got here.

"So they're in custody."

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that at least a dozen people had returned the money they collected to the CHP.

Sgt Martin said: "People are bringing a lot.

"It is a lot of money."

It is still unclear exactly how much money was dropped.

The police say that the investigation is still ongoing.
